Excerpt: Trying to get away from cable TV and go to computer streaming. Purchased this item to get access to internet. My Samsung system required this particular adapter, but I have not been able to get it to work.

Excerpt: My TV and Home Theater are both Samsung products so the Samsung LAN Adapters are required to connect to my network. I was originally concerned if the adapters were backwards compatable, but that concern was instantly dispelled when I connected the first adapter. They actually exceed my expectations!
Pros: Backwards Compatible, Easy Set-Up, Good Connections

Summary: I purchased this hoping to replace an aging Wii as a Netflix streaming client (the TV in question has a built-in app for it). I can fire up Netflix and browse just fine, but 10 seconds after starting a movie or show, it invariably tries to rebuffer. 5 seconds after the video starts again, another rebuffering message. After that one is finished, I might get another second or two before the Netflix app informs me that there might be something wrong with my connection.
